    What is your band and mode of choice? I like 10 meters SSB & FM. The band is dead right now, but have heard a couple openeings from S.A. lately.

    By the way - I am Advanced class. The last of a dying few. [​IMG]
    I monitor 28.520 almost every night so when you are bored, give a shout. There are several of us that listen for an opening.

    There was a time I was pretty good at CW, but old age has helped take that away too. I also dabbled in QRP which required the CW skills. I have WAC on less than 1 watt.

    Now I'm pretty much just an appliance operator.

    The QRZ and KD6 are obvious, but what do the other abreviations stand for?
    thanks
